I Found It

I've been searching for a book of knit edgings and trims since I added the edging to Little Princess. I've looked in yarn shops and online without any luck.

Last week, I found what I've been seeking: knit edgings & trims 150 stitches, edited by Kate Haxell.

I like to actually look inside a knitting book before I purchase, and when I picked this one off of the shelf at Barnes & Noble in Cheyenne, I knew I could stop searching.

The book has a nice variety of modern and traditional trims and edgings. Here are just a few that you will find inside:













This book should be in every knitter's reference library.

I also found a bargain on the Hobby Lobby Clearance rack. Someday, I hope to make one of the gown sets.

  2. This book is sitting in my KnitPicks cart, so it was nice to hear a recommendation for it! An edging certainly adds a special touch to a blanket.

  3. Wow, your lucky day! The edging book looks very interesting! I love thebaby gown book also. I've always wanted to try one, but I never like the way my projects look when I seam them together. That's why I mostly do top down projects, no seams.

  4. You're going to get a lot of good use out of that book!
